This week, on Wednesday the 19th, 2008, I had the opportunity to attend the second charity benefit for Kaley Smith, an infant with a debilitating brain disease. Again, it was was spearheaded and hosted by Picnic Caterers, with celebrity chef Sara Moulton as the guest of honor and who’s recipes served as the focal point of the charity event. Rachel attended in my stead last year, as I was on a business trip. I was really happy to have gone this year because I got to see Christine Nunn and the staff at Picnic Caterers in their true element, at an actual catering event.
Sara Moulton, Christine Nunn, Kaley Smith’s mom, Kerryan and big sister Kara.

Hello, could you please send me the recipe for the butter poached tenderloin? I’ve been searching everywhere for one! Thank you in advance!
